Hello again, just wanted to ask if there is any progress on the actors Nisaba. Not that I want you to hurry but we are getting closer to the release and we want to get things sorted :)

so here is the deal.
I was talking so a certain somebody who might design the last two Dopefish burping frames within the next few days. no promises, but chances aren't too bad.

about the Bluebird:
as you guys already know I am at feud with these blue suckers. so the egg rotation seen above are the absolute max I'm willing to pixel. sorry, but I really don't like these guys. if it was me I wouldn't let them hatch their eggs ever. I'm dead serious. Their resistance to being stunned as well as their maneuverability to virtually any area of the level scared my ass off when I was a child. for years I avoided to play Chasm of Chills and Crystalus just because of them. so, Bluebird is a no no.
as a loophole the standard Keen4 Bluebird sprites could get implemented and be animated in a way, that this scary dude is just always facing Keen. I mean like always, always. Whew!... just like a maniac.

Hey again Nisaba,

thanks for the quick reply. That's crazy indeed but I fully understand this, I feel with you as I had a similar experience with something else. But I find it certainly entertainung how our brain sometimes works. :) Anyway, is there someone else who is willed and interested in helping us out with this last one and the few remaining Dopefish sprites?

BoA is slowly (?) heading towards "release-ready", and we still have the Blue Bird thing unsolved.

I've made the flying and stun rotations, there is basically only 3 walking rotations left to make/finish (10 frames total)....is there any non-Nisaba spriter here who is ready to do the last sprint? To help us to finally finish this thing?

This is awesome - thanks to non-Nisaba, looks like the person is capable of producing the same quality. Who would have thought this... :)

Wow, nice improvements to front walking frames.

I've made meantime a surprise egg-related animation yesterday.
But still too scared to approach the diagonal walking rotations...

Sorry for pushing this but only the blue eagle and the dopefish are missing now from the complete cast. Any support would be awesome :)

*Update*
Well, the only thing thatโ€™s left now is the Dopefish, we got the remaining Bluebird sprites finished internally

Finally finished the Blue Bird, I'm slowly getting the hang of Keen enemy rotation :)
Result is not as good as Nisaba's, but it's sure in "good enough" territory.
